From my experience dogs are more like Aspies because dogs are consistent & predictable & know routines. Whereas cats are inconsistent, unpredictable & don't fallow routines well.

Also cats enjoy a lot of physical contact from just about any human.

Domestic cats that is. Feral cats pretty much act like any other wild predatory animal, as far as I know.

That's like saying dogs have ADHD. Or sloths have chronic fatigue syndrome. Or owls have insomnia because they don't sleep at night. It's normal for them because that's how nature made them. Humans, however, are about as unnatural a species can get because the majority of them are NT, and don't what might not be normal to them may be normal for another.

If we are talking about non-otherkin, non-therian cats then I typically don't believe so. It doesn't even make sense to me why some people assume that non-human animals have Asperger's and other such stuff.

^ This...this is probably one of the best posts I read all day. I completely agree with this.

I'd say no, as I have two cats that are quite social. They are usually in the same room. They play and fight with each other. When I'm home they usually follow me around.

The normal behavior for cats might resemble aspie behavior in humans.

But that doesn't mean that all cats literally have aspergers.

Part of the diagnostic criteria is that it has to significantly interfere with their ability to function.

My neighbor had a cat with severe anxiety and digestive problems, and needed special feeding routine and meds to survive at all... That one might have had Aspergers.

No, other animals brains work differently from human brains.

My one cat seems to have a sensory processing disorder regarding touch.

Dogs don't have Asperger's either. If either cats or dogs are able to display something analogous to Asperger's or ASD we have yet to name and recognize it.
